Gender: F Meaning of Chloe: "young green shoot" Origin of Chloe: Greek Chloe's Popularity in 2015: #17

Considerably more dynamic than most of the other Greek-based romantic literary names of the seventeenth century, Chloe is a pretty springtime name symbolizing new growth, though by no means as fresh as it once was. It had been shooting up the charts for several years, now sitting at Number 17, and has been also mega-popular throughout Great Britain, Australia, and Canada. The creative spelling Khloe has been moving up as well, thanks solely to the Kardashian klan.

While Chloe has not been used for any recent celebrity babies, it is the name of the now-grown daughters of Olivia Newton-John and of Candice Bergen and the late French film director Louis Malle. Actress and style leader Chloe Sevigny is another high-profile bearer, as is rising young star Chloe Grace Moretz.

Chloe appeared in Greek mythology as an alternative name for the goddess of agriculture and fertility, Demeter, and in the Greek pastoral romance Daphnis and Chloe. It is also mentioned in the New Testament, appears in Uncle Tom's Cabin, and is the real name of Nobel prize-winning writer Toni Morrison.
